Chicago Longitudinal Study

For the week of July 31st, 2011

Guest: University of Minnesota Professor of Child Development Arthur Reynolds, co-director of the Human Capital Research Collaborative and author of the Chicago Longitudinal Study.

Issues: Reynolds discusses his study on the Child-Parent Center program—a school-based intervention from preschool to the early grades available in inner-city Chicago public grade schools. The study—which began in the 1980s—links early education to lower crime rates, higher graduation rates and attendance to 4 year college, and a higher socioeconomic status.
